Epics, Mounts, Dailies, Kara

So, I've been playing a lot lately, job hunting has left me with way too much free time, and not nearly enough money, so WoW has become my time-waster of choice.

I wanted to comment on a few things (assorted K-style ramblings to follow):

I love purples. Abs is almost totally out of blues now, just his breastplate remains, and that is only 14 badges from being taken care of. 164 badges from being out of things to buy from the Badge vendor. Sounds like a lot, right? well, thats 2 months if all I run is Kara.

Pos... I don't even know. I don't even know where his upgrades are going to come from anymore. I suppose I should start looking for that. What to get. Where to go. What heroics may be upgrades. I got burned out on him shortly after I hit 70. I pushed pretty hard to get his gear up to par and get him not only Kara ready, but, to be a good tank as well. I see too many bad ones out there.

Mounts. Abs got an epic mount. I cannot stress this enough to anyone who debates this. I did it wrong. Get your epic mount FIRST before you get gear. Abs blew a TON of money on gear, Spellstrike Hood and Pants, Belt of Blasting, gear for Pos. I should've bought my mount first. The amount of time it saves you running dailies, farming mats, whatever it may be is unbelievable.

Dailies. I love them, and I loathe them. The SSO dailies took Pos 3x as long to do as Abs. At least. Its kind of sad. Pos is still sitting with quests not even began in Blades Edge Mountians, SMV and Netherstorm. I mean, he hasn't really began any quests in those zones at all.

Soon, I'm gonna respec him fury and get all those quests done within a couple weeks. Can't beat the rep, right?

Karazhan. I get the feeling some of the guild is getting burned out on Kara. They want a change of pace. They want to see something new. ZA is on the horizon. Okay, its beyond the horizon flying at us as fast as reavers

I'm worried my friends are worried I'm going to get poached by another guild as I've been trying to run ZA whenever I see a guild pugging it... plus I've made some good friends with the Got Milk crew, and they are a really fun bunch. Reminds me a LOT of KoU. I've learned a lot from them. Heck, I think KoU, without prompting, can get the first chest our first run in ZA. Just have to get people to realize that its gonna be a wipe fest our first time in there. For sure.


I think we can get past the first 2 bosses, maybe past the 3rd.

We'll see.

So, guys, its coming. Maybe this week.

Read up on the strats....

Posty Goodness. Yay!

And those were not K-style ramblings. They were far more organized than ever I would be.

And nice way to rub in the wowhead popups! *sob*

I'm game for ZA. And feh, the first 'time' through, if the Got Milk crew is amenable to split-running it with us... ?

Good luck! Veritas hasn't done ZA yet but one of the members has PuGed it, and now that we've downed Prince (although I wasn't there, stupid AM part 2 runs...) it's looking more possible.

I need to get my epic flyer. I've been goofing off on alts when I need to be doing more dailies..
